The singer further added: "I also learned to create moments. That's the one [lesson] I'll take with me forever. It's not just a song, you have to create a moment, create something that's memorable. One of the best bits of advice was to not think about winning or losing as a competition, just go out there and sing."
As for her victory in "The Voice" Season 5, Ms Chin admitted that she never expected to win and finds it hard to say that she wants to win because of the respect she has with the other contenders. "I never expected to win. I'd hoped, but at this point, you get to love the people you're competing against. I love Jacquie and Will. It was hard to say I wanna win because you respect the people to your left and right. I didn't know what to expect. That's completely honest," Ms Chin admitted.
